5 Tips for an Epic Galentine's Party
Valentine’s Day occurs on February 14 and is celebrated around the world with the exchange of gifts, candy and flowers. But for those of us that might be rocking the solo life or have significant others on active duty assignments, far away, check out our top tips for hosting an epic Galentine’s party with your closest friends.
Create a Theme
Get everyone into the spirit of the evening with a theme. From pajama night to prom to Barbie, your guests will have so much fun expressing their unique style and it will keep the excitement going leading up to the event.
Setup a Love Note Station
We all need to hear some words of appreciation and what better way to do it than to set up a love note station at the event. Grab some colored note cards and pens and encourage everyone to write something special down to give to the other guests. These notes will mean more than you know and can create a long-lasting memory.
